. you know that the ceo, howard schultz, has been very vocal, almost political, i would say, about his distaste for gridlock in washington. he wants to help people, help companies, create jobs. so they have started something, a small business loan program that they're trying to help fund. you buy $5 donation at your starbucks when you get your cup of joe. you get this cool bracelet to show that you're a supporter of american jobs. and then they're going to send that money called the opportunity finance network, i think, and they're going to try to get, they say, every donation you give will help fund $35 into that to get main street hiring. you know, carol, it's interesting. main street has been hiring. big companies have been firing or not hiring over the past couple years. main street is where any hiring has been happening, it's been happening. companies with under 500 employees on average are hiring about 60,000 people a month. so howard schultz wants to keep the money flowing to that. >> good for him. christine, see you in a bit. >>> herman cain mired in a sexual harassment scandal
